February 11, (THEWILL) – Gunmen suspected to be assassins, have killed the Director of Operations, Kaduna Geographic Information Service (KADGIS), Malam Dauda.
Dauda, THEWILL learnt, was killed on Friday morning when the gunmen stormed his residence at Barakallahu community in Igabi Local Government Area of the state.
A community leader, Muhammad Abdullahi, who confirmed the incident, said the Divisional Police Officers (DPOs) of Rigachikun and Barnawa who also resided in the community, were seen near the late director’s house after he was killed.
“This is simply a case of assassination because they went to only the victim’s house, killed him and left the community, they did not take anything in his house neither did they attack the guard and his wife.
“Even the other village that was attacked, no life was lost, they just caused commotion and left. We feel they just did that to make it look like an attack.
“We have been facing various security breaches in the community,” said Abdullahi
However, a local source said the “gunmen numbering five sneaked into the community early morning on Friday.”
“They killed the Director of Operations of the Kaduna Geographic Information Service (KADGIS), Malam Dauda.
“They forced themselves into late Dauda’s house. He was our neighbour in Barakallahu community in Igabi Local Government Area of the state. They killed him and fled. They did not take anything in his house.
“Before they came, they attacked the other community. People’s attention was diverted,” a local said.
The state police command is yet to respond to the incident. The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, ASP Mohammed Jalige has not respond to calls and messages to his phone at the time of filing this report.
